This paper addresses the problem of robust hybrid position and force control of robot manipulators. Variable structure control with sliding mode is used to implement the hybrid control strategy. Two variable structure control algorithms are developed in task space. One of the algorithms is based on hierarchical control method, and the other is developed for control of robot manipulators used to carried out both unconstrained and constrained tasks.
